  • The pyramid is unchanged. The terrain around it seems to be riemed and tidy (military legacies?)

  • The monument is part of the 7 Wonders of the world. It is to be seen, certainly it is beautiful and grandiose but, very touristy and suddenly a lot of resellers for everything and anything that follow you and they are very insistent. For everything in horse-drawn carriage or on the back of animals or to take pictures etc... But this place is not imagined as long as we are not there. On the other hand no need to sleep on the spot. Go there for the day and then go back to Cairo Center.
